Baccarat Hotel and Residences New York

Midtown, New York

The hotel

A little piece of Paris in the middle of Manhattan, Baccarat Hotel is all crystal-coated opulence, with silk-covered walls, chandelier-studded ceilings, and hints of platinum and champagne. Your guestroom pairs crisp white linen with glittering mirrors concealing your TV and a red enamel minibar, while a ‘one touch device’ covers your lighting, climate and entertainment, and connects you to your 24 hour Concierge – it even has a button simply labelled ‘champagne’. More than a pied-à-terre, no luxury’s been omitted: a vintage cherry red Citroën acts as your house car, the 60 foot bar’s terrace overlooks the MoMa, the Riviera-inspired indoor pool features cabanas with over-stuffed daybeds, and the Grand Salon’s central table is dressed with French pastries for breakfast, before the space is transformed for indulgent High Teas, nightly champagne soirees, and fine French dining.

We had dinner in the Grand Salon and drinks in the very happening bar. Altogether a delight. Read less

The hotel is perfectly located as well, just steps from MoMA, Central Park, Bergdorf Goodman, and so much more. We had an incredible afternoon tea here as well. Will absolutely be returning.

Love this hotel; favorite not only in NYC, but almost anywhere. Great staff from the front desk to the bartenders to the doormen. Rooms are incredible, esp the bathrooms. Staying here isn't travel, it's pure pleasure.

Wanted to write this review as soon as i left the hotel to use all the excitement i had while staying here. It’s marvellous hotel that pays attention to all details. The suite we stayed (many thanks for the bday upgrade) makes you feel never to leave. It’s like a Baccarat little show room. Quite and located in the heart of the city. Bar is fabulous and vibrant, breakfast simply perfect and staff so friendly - you feel like being at home with extra luxury! Thank you Baccarat for amazing time and all your friendly and wonderful hospitality. Can’t wait to visit again. Read less
